I see this big stigma about how test collabs are shit and pointless and boring and blah blah blah.
They're oversatured and unoriginal sure, that much is true. But they're also good for scouting animators to participate in something bigger. I know when I reccomended people to participate in Paradig 2 it was based on a pointless test collab, but it still showcased the skill these animators had.
It brought unseen talent to my eyes, a lot of it. If anything test collabs are still an important part of this community, they help showcase new animators and what they can bring to the table for bigger projects.
A lot of unnecessary shit gets thrown their way, but like I said they're important for showcasing a bunch of individual talent in one spot.
If you want to make a test collab, do it. Gather new animators, bring all of you together in one spot so we can all see what you're capable of.
Just something that's been on my mind while Matt and I have been working on some cool stuff lately.
Expect some cool shit dudes.
